This was a big challenge for me when editing my book to send to an editor who requested it. I decided tunnel vision was the best option and for a while it was, however I discovered some hard truths.
- Editing can be draining both emotionally and creatively
- You miss out on what's happening with friends and family
- Your creative well isn't renewed with just editing
I found I missed blogging, and all forms of cyber communication more than I realized. Especially the interaction, and not just the scroll through and quick likes during my morning bathroom routine, but dedicated time to reading and leaving comments (when blogger would allow me). Most importantly, I missed the wonderful people.
So tell me angels, what do you do to get back on track or stay there all the time?
